Hazardous waste is a serious problem that continues to endanger humans, animals, and environmental quality. However, as workers clean up hazardous waste sites, they face safety and health hazards. OSHA issued the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard to protect workers during cleanup operations and help them handle the wastes safely and effectively.

Temperature extremes pose a real concern to the health, safety, and comfort of workers involved in hazardous waste cleanup sites. Heat stress is a major hazard, especially for those that work outdoors or wear protective clothing. In fact, outside temperatures do not need to be all that high for heat to build up in a protective suit. Cold disorders, while less common, can also threaten those that work outdoors or in cold storage areas. Temperature extremes (hot or cold) are not only unbearable, they can kill.

This HAZWOPER training course is designed to inform cleanup site workers about the dangers of working in extreme temperatures, the signs and symptoms to watch for in temperature-related injury or illness, how to respond to signs and symptoms, and how to protect themselves when working in temperature extremes.
